Israeli forces fired teargas canisters and rubber bullets to disperse stone-throwing Palestinians in the West Bank city of Hebron.

Scores of Palestinians suffered temporary asphyxiation and were treated on spot, according to eyewitnesses.

Two Palestinians were injured in clashes between protesters and Israeli forces in the southern Bethlehem and East Jerusalem.

Scores of Palestinians also suffocated from teargas fired by Israeli forces during clashes in the northern Nablus city.

Similar clashes were reported in Salwad village in eastern Ramallah, but no casualties were reported.
